Introduction to Fruit Tree Grafting

Cantigny Greenhouse

1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Adults:  Free with registration (Cantigny Park parking fee still applies)

This is the perfect opportunity to learn about fruit tree grafting!  The Midwest Fruit Explorers club is meeting at Cantigny and preparing woody plant materials for an upcoming seminar.  They have offered to provide instruction and handout materials to anyone who might have an interest in learning a little more about grafting.  They will be providing the scion wood and rootstock (available for nominal fee) plus “practice materials”.  You’re also welcome to join their club and spread the news about grafting fruit trees–one member mentioned grafting up to 50 different apple varieties onto 1 apple tree!  We’re guessing that after this program you will go home with at least one grafted apple tree…

Please park at the main entrance. Trams will be available to transport you down to the greenhouse
